Hello
I installed the Tomcat 3.2.4 on my computer. But it doesn't work when I go to the URL http://localhost:8080/. Do I have to install web server before installing Tomcat?
Thanks

What do you mean by "it doens't work"?
Can you tell us the contents of the page that is displayed when you try to go to that URL?
Also, have you "started" tomcat? By this I mean did you go to a dos prompt, cd to the bin directory of tomcat, and enter the command startup? Tomcat, as configured after installation, will not automatically run in the background. You have to tell it to do so.

I also specify path see below please
SET JAVA_HOME=C:\j2sdk1.4.0_01\bin
set _CP=%CP%
set _TOMCAT_HOME=%C:\tomcat\jakarta-tomcat-3.2.4\lib%
set _CLASSPATH=%CLASSPATH%
